22 plays.  Wow!

I should retire! I'm banging my head against the wall to get 6 plays installed and running well in 4.5 practices before the season starts. Sometimes we have 15 plays by the end of the season and others, we may get to 8.  I remember my first season as Coach.  I had approximately 40 plays diagrammed.  (All kinds of variants of plays).  After our 3rd practice I tossed that crap in the garbage.   

Quantity over Quality!  :P

I inherited a Wing-T system with Rocket type motion from the backs from last year. Thought I'd be all cool and put in a RPO system.....boy was I wrong. Ended up scrapping it like I mentioned. We are 8 man but basically we are running 11 LEFT and 11 Right plays, we threw in a few others during the install, our entire playbook is 46 I believe.


                      JET RIGHT                                  JET LEFT                                 EAGLE (Inherited)
                    LG C RG X Y                             Y X LG C RG                                X LG C RG Y
            2           Q             3                      2            Q           3                    2                       3


We Jet the back on the unbalanced side for every play minus a few where we pitch out. So our offense looks like


JET LEFT 2 SWEEP
JET RIGHT 3 SWEEP
JET LEFT 3 COUNTER
JET RIGHT 2 COUNTER
JET LEFT 2 COUNTER
JET LEFT 3  COUNTER
JET LEFT 35 DIVE
JET RIGHT 26 DIVE
etc...
of course we have Reverses, flat passes and we do a
JET LEFT 3 PASS SPLIT ... looks like

                              X Y LG C RG
   2                                    Q              3

3 Jets, HB pass to 2 if the LB/DB bites down, we have 2 run a stop and go.


Blocking is fairly easy.. we zone block away from ball.. we pull our strong side guard on counters and reverses to help the unbalanced side... all in all its 11 plays flipped.. so

Hopefully im not going to out smart myself again.

Maybe I should have been more to the point.  Just because there are 11 plays, that I can flip left or right, doesn't mean they are 22 well executed plays.  Hence the reason I tossed my 40 play book after 3 practices. 

I suggest Reading "The Simple Six" Written by Don Schnake.  Or reviewing Dave Cisar's "Sainted Six".  Both discuss the ability to have Six Plays that you can execute to near perfection.  Offensive Scheme has nothing to do with that philosophy.  Rather they stress having Six "Go to"plays.

The Simple Six is one of the best offensive football books out there. Everyone should read it. I love the idea of putting together a core of well executed plays that attack everywhere on the field and complement (and protect) each other.
